Air Pollution in China: Mapping of Concentrations and Sources

  title={Air Pollution in China: Mapping of Concentrations and Sources},
  author={Robert A. Rohde and Richard A. Muller and Aijun Ding},
  booktitle={PloS one},
China has recently made available hourly air pollution data from over 1500 sites, including airborne particulate matter (PM), SO2, NO2, and O3. We apply Kriging interpolation to four months of data to derive pollution maps for eastern China. Consistent with prior findings, the greatest pollution occurs in the east, but significant levels are widespread across northern and central China and are not limited to major cities or geologic basins. Sources of pollution are widespread, but are… CONTINUE READING
